Re: Animals and vegetables in Instrumentality?

Instrumentality could be a reference to death and heaven. We see the bad people like Gendo getting punished for their sins, by getting eaten by an Eva, whilst others ascending into another plane of existence, which could be the 'holy city' or the Kingdom of God. The clearest reference of a soul woul...

Re: Share your Dreams (Part 2)

When we are young, often is the case our parents are our whole world, so it could be the case you imagined a perceived threat such as the giant embodiment of your phobia as a way of drawing the attention of your absent parents. Often is the case our deepest fears are the abandonment of our loved one...

Re: Non-Canon Angels

Interesting designs, Shateiel looks like the new ps5. I don't see the three angels from the game "Decisive Battle in Tokyo 3"' on the wiki though, so could be updated if necessary.

Re: Disney shifting focus from theatrical releases to streaming

I don't think american cinemas are dying necessarily, but rather evolving. In recent news, Universal struck a deal with the cinema chain Cinemark to shorten the time for a movie to get from the big screen to home releases. This means that there is less risk for a movie to hit-or-miss on the big scre...

Re: Are lilin and homo sapiens synonymous?

By the way, I also don't know that Rei uses pills as her main source of nutrition-we never actually get to know what they're necessary for, so they could just as well be there to keep her organism functioning. It is odd that she does not have any food in her apartment aside from the pills and a gla...

Re: Are lilin and homo sapiens synonymous?

I think Rei's diet is to do with the fact that Anno himself is a vegetarian. Its nice to see a healthy diet every now and then and Rei sets an example for us to all to eat healthier. Technically, Rei mostly takes pills as her main source of nutrition (her biology is odd and not really human). The wo...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

I would err on the side of caution about releasing or attending a movie IF there is a major breakout. But the studio seems optimistic enough to continue working on some final sound edits and provide updates, so no doubt Eva will be soon at its finishing stages. I'm not sure what the 21 minute time n...

Re: Among Us

But that option is not available all the time. I was probably too far way from the dead body so I could not report it immediately. I try not to invest too much time in the game though it is really is satisfying stumbling on the scene of the crime and catching someone in the act. I remember being sus...

Re: Hideaki Anno 2004 Interview

I agree that the technology is there to get an awesome looking Eva unit. I think I've heard about the deleted scenes, and I just searched it on youtube and watched the clips, but yeah good thing it was cut out. Other than the content difference between Eva and pacific rim/Alita, there is also the vi...

Re: Hideaki Anno 2004 Interview

'But when I was working on The End of Evangelion, I came to the conclusion that it had to be a live-action film.' I guess anno has ambitions to make evangelion more life-like but I doubt it could have worked in any other way except for that surreal montage at the end. So many of the classic old anim...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

I just re-watched the curious case of benjamin button on Netflix, which is good if you have not seen it. The script was developed by the same guy who adapted Forrest Gump from the book and I can tell why. It's almost the same story and characters: guy experiences the extraordinary events in his time...

Re: What is Rei doing in the beginning of EoE?

The best answer I came up with is that maybe she lost all hope, and she just wanna die, like the other Reis... She awakens in the beginning of the movie rather uncertain of herself as well. I think Rei spent along time reflecting on her past versions and her purpose. After careful deliberation she ...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

^ From what I've heard, the English ADV was, if anything, very lively as opposed to the very lethargic delivery of the Netflix dub. I guess they tried to replicate the (for anime standards) very subdued Japanese original. But while being relatively down to earth it always remained nuanced and expre...

Re: How do you feel about grown ups watching anime?

I believe anno not only approves of it but was one of the original progenitors of a new adult-type of anime that was gaining recognition in the nineties. In a time where anime could have stuck to just astroboy or lupin, there were certain gamechangers that stood out as being slightly more edgy and m...
